Yukong is the first four star character in Honkai Star Rail to possess the Imaginary element.

Being a four-star character, she’s easily obtainable through gacha pulls. So, if you need additional support, she’s worth considering.

Team for Yukong?

Yukong’s Skill provides an Attack buff (Roaring Bowstrings) to the two characters who take their turns after her.

Therefore, she should be played in a lineup with two DPS characters. One important consideration is that these two DPS characters shouldn’t have higher Speed than Yukong.

You have plenty of choices here, ranging from Dan Heng and Serval for free-to-play options, or pairing Seele with characters of the Hunt, Destruction, or Erudition types. The last slot can be filled with a healer.

You can also replace one of the DPS characters with a support or utility character. Just make sure that character can contribute to the damage output to take advantage of Yukong’s buff effect.

Playing Yukong is straightforward. Build her until she have the highest speed in your party so she can get first turn. use her skill, then continue with DPS. Use her Ultimate only when the buff effect she provides is still active to add extra punch.
